Pro-Palestinian activist Raed Salah is set to be deported from the UK after a court ruled on Wednesday that his removal would be conducive to the public good.

The leader of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel has lost his appeal against deportation and will be deported “at the earliest opportunity.”

Salah has been in the UK since June, despite being banned from the country. The Islamist leader was able to enter the country and speak at number of anti-Israel events before being arrested.

He appealed an original deportation order issued by Home Secretary Theresa May, who deemed that he was not conducive to the public good, and was granted bail in July, on a surety of $49,000, while he awaited the deportation hearing.

On Wednesday an immigration tribunal concluded that Salah has engaged in “the unacceptable behavior of fostering hatred” which might lead to intercommunity violence in the UK.
